I have been renamed Clayton (you don’t even want to know what I was originally called!!), and I am a 4 year old Shih-Tzu. My story is kind of unusual, Sophie’s Dog Adoption got a call from a lady who had put an ad online asking for someone to give her a dog. Some lady e-mailed her and said I was available, and I was super sweet. I was brought to the new home, and the next day I bit someone as I was very nervous. She called for me to be taken back , and was pretty much told they didn’t want me back and to call Sophie’s Dog Adoption to surrender me….
So here I am, new name and new outlook on life. I am a little skittish and shy, and a typical Shih-Tzu who doesn’t like quick movements nor people in my face. However, despite my growling and showing teeth, I have not tried to bite anyone since I arrived.
My foster mom says I have a lot of potential to become a secure little fellow, but right now I am confused and nervous around new people and new things.
So I am looking for a calm and relaxed environment, ideally no kids, to be loved and taken care of for the rest of my life. If you adopt me, I will be forever grateful.
